Media reports speak in general terms, so their information may not represent the reality of our local Carlsbad real estate market. Having data, and knowledge, about the local market conditions benefits you as the buyer or seller so you can make informed purchase and sale decisions. 

In December 2010 there were 114 Carlsbad homes sold (4 zipcodes), 2 more than in November. Here's the breakdown of overall activity.

The number of sales declined by 5, with average prices decreasing modestly; Days on market remained roughly the same.

There were 96 properties (15% of the total) in Carlsbad at the end of December with the CONTINGENT status (i.e., homes with offers being reviewed for approval by short sale and REO lenders), just 1 more home than last month.

The overall inventory in the Carlsbad real estate market for the end of December (628 homes) declined again, by9%, the 4th month in a row. This represents an inventory of 6.2 months for attached homes (down from 6.3 months last month) and only 4.6 months for detached (down from 5.1 months last month) based on the current rate of sales over the last 6 months.

Randy - yeah I get that. It's been chillier than normal here, but nothing compare to what you and so many others are dealing with.

Thanks, Ginny. I saw your new market report photo - it was terrific. Mine were easy to create in Picnik. Thanks for the compliment on the 101 Things, It was a fun article to do - it may be time for a redo.

Jeff: If I'm reading this right, it sounds like the Carlsbad market is (maybe not at its best yet) but certainly appears to be stabilizing. The average List/Sell$ is teetering between 96% and 97% since August...

Congratulations on crossing into the million point zone. It speaks volumes about discipline, consistency, and dedication. Have a great 2011.

Thanks, Bill. On both counts.

Pat - thank you so much. I so appreciate the blog you did, too. Very much appreciated but not necessary.

Gail - why how nice of you to say so.

Thanks, Rene. Overall we are in decent shape. The next few months with invetnory and rates will be very telling, I think.

Pamela - you are so kind. Thanks. And I appreciate your post, too.

Steve - Carlsbad seems to be doing pretty well overall. We are seeing some more shorts in the higher price ranges

Tom - but the changes are pretty small adn given the time of year not worrisome.

Barbara-Jo - well things are picking up here at the moment. I have seen some others' reports that were showing some improvement.

Thank you, Connie

Hi Jeff, The numbers seem consistenat with what many other areas have been doing the last month. Sales are down and prices seem stable ( more so for SFD),

 

Congratulations my friend for crossing the million point threshold and you are now in a very small elite group of Millionaires ( points at least).
